Oh it's true Fuglsang was going to be Astana leader at TdF. I don't know who is his agent but he deserves the award "agent of the year".


My bet it's Astana too, Purito demands big $

Same agent as Brajkovic probably.

Would a move back to Movistar be a possibility, ok they have Valverde but Purito would have excellent support in the mountains with Quintana and Smydt to set the pace.

If Valverde wants to focus on something else yes most certainly a possibility.

One year with Astana, then back to KAT. Poor Fuglsang.

How about OPQS? They don't have any GT contender...oh wait Tony Martin is there.

If he wants he would go back to Movistar or going to Euskaltel and to have Mikel Nieve and Igor Anton as super-domestiques in the Tour.

If Euskaltel have that kind of money then why did they buy such mediocre cyclists?

Why on earth would he want to be in the same team as Valverde? I guess as a last resort...
